Workbook for Introductory Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences, Second Edition provides an introduction to the concepts of statistics. This book aims to help students obtain the necessary practice in a first course in statistics, which is essential to learning and understanding the material. This edition begins with an overview of summation notation exercises with additional computational practices. This text then provides computational exercises for regular frequency distributions, grouped frequency distributions, cumulative frequency distribution, graphic representations, measures of central tendency, measures of variability, and general transformations. This book discusses as well the probability and the general strategy of inferential statistics as well as the differences between the means of two populations. The reader is also introduced to the main advantage of nonparametric and distribution-free statistical tests in which they do not require the population being sampled to the normally distributed. This book is a valuable resource for students of behavioral and social sciences.
